I'd just stick to the friend as much as I can.. who knows, maybe you'll be suprised and enjoy it...? As for drinks, i'd just have softdrink or coke zero if they have it, and just sip it slowly.

My normal advice would be to get drunk, but you're pregnant. So back to square one...
Maybe just psych yourself up that you're going to have a good time, and try to make some small talk. Ask people lots of questions about themselves. Most people love to talk about themselves.
Maybe after your friend is comfortable, you can can feign illness and leave.
I do find it difficult to be around a lot of drunk people when I'm sober. I get more easily irritated.

Hey there, if you really want to get out of it, I'd tell them you've been sick or starting to get a cold...as no one else wants to get sick too
I agree with all the other posts, I get a bit uncomfortable in those types of situations too & I've learnt the best thing to get a conversation going is to ask people questions about themselves...you'll find as soon as you start they won't stop talking about themselves, haha!!
Drinks, pink lemonade or lemon lime & bitters in small glasses always look like they have alcohol in them or juice with a bit of soda water..
If things get too bad, text DP & ask them to ring you, then you have an excuse if you want to get out of there earlier.
I really hope you have fun!! Good luck!

As PP have said, ask the others questions about themselves, for example:
What do you do for a job?
Have you got children? And then all the Qs associated with them
I like your dress/top, where did you get it?
Have you ever travelled?
How do you know soandso? (obviously I mean the mutual friend)
you will be fine, because you are pure awesomeness

Just remember that generally at bars everyone is just crapping on about anything, so it really won't matter too much what you're talking about, it's all fine. Another thing is that most people will bf too busy thinking about themselves to worry about what other people are doing, saying etc.. Lots of people get social anxiety when they go out and sometimes it helps me to remind myself of that. Make the most of it and you'll find it goes a lot quicker and at the end you might have had not too bad a night! Hope it goes well
